So that we may serve you better, we ask that you fill out an attendance card located on the back of the pew, including your address and noting that you are a visitor.

POINSETTIAS Thank you to everyone that purchased a poinsettia this Christmas. The sanctuary looked beautiful!

Sunday, December 26th.***

PORTALS OF PRAYERS  Please bring in your old Portals of Prayer to the office.  We can give them to the CID LWML who will recycle them to prison ministries.

St. John’s Trustees are in the process of looking for a new custodian to replace Flo Moore who is retiring soon.  Any questions, please see a Trustee.  The schedule will be 3 days per week, with a possible 9-12 hours per week. Pay is bi-weekly.

USHER CAPTAINS AND USHERS We need volunteers to serve as both Usher Captains and Ushers.  An Usher Captain requires a month long commitment, and the recruiting of a team. Ushers need only volunteer as they are available. There is a sign up sheet on the Library counter. Please prayerfully consider serving your congregation in this way!

THANK YOU Chuck Brokaw would like to thank everyone who helped usher on Saturday nights.
